Fun time at Intuit

One of my all time favorite artists, Karl Wirsum, curated a selection of art from the collection of Intuit opening tonight Friday.  Seeing their collection through his curatorial eye should make for an appealing show. 

There'll also be a show of over 50 hand built radios and drawings by self-taught artist George Kagan. 

If you've never been to Intuit, tonight would be an excellent time to go.  They also have a permanent installation of a recreation of outsider artist Henry Darger's one-room apartment, which was salvaged several years ago.  It contains many items from his studio including his original art supplies, fireplace mantel, photos, and artwork.
